The gym has been under construction for the past few months. Among other updates, there is a brand new floor, new bleachers, new scoreboard, new sound system, carpeting and paint.

“The students are super excited about the new gym, especially the student-athletes,” Steve Eskridge, Athletic Director said.  “They are proud that Shoreline CC now has a gym that is as nice as the other colleges that we compete against have.”

Eskridge said he is looking forward to the students and coaches being able to use the updated facilities and that the renovations have improved the gym 120 percent.

“It brings new life to the athletic department,” Eskridge said. “This is the one of the best things I have experienced at Shoreline CC since being here for almost 25 years. Go Phins!”

There are a few final touches yet to be made, but it can now be used and visited. It looks great! See a couple more photos on flickr.
